Wildmon's teabaggers

Posted By on Fri, Jun 12, 2009 at 1:18 PM

I had somehow missed until this news release that the TEA Party protests were the work of the Religious Right crusader Donald Wildmon's American Family Association. Tax protests are one thing. Joining up with this outfit's agenda is another. Note that the call for contributions on the Tea Party website go to AFA.

You can bring your teabags to the River Market Amphitheatre at 5:30 p.m. Monday. Entertainment includes various right-wing politicos and a fellow angry about multi-culturalism. 

AFA TEA Party rallies scheduled in over 1,100 cities

TUPELO, MS – American Family Association has Taxed Enough Already (TEA) Party rallies scheduled in 1,145 cities for July 4. The family organization is opposed to the spending policies promoted by President Obama. Such policies call for record spending and deficits.
“Our grandchildren and great-grandchildren will be paying the bill for President Obama’s reckless spending spree,” said AFA Chairman Donald E. Wildmon.  “Our national debt is already a trillion dollars, and the president is planning to spend trillions more.  It is a crime and a sin to place this heavy debt on our children,” he stated.
Wildmon said that if government controlled health insurance is put into law, as Obama wants, the deficits will climb several trillion dollars higher.
On April 15, approximately 600,000 individuals attended rallies sponsored by several organizations around the nation.  With the exception of Fox News, all the other mainline national media nearly ignored the protests.
The organizing committee in each city is responsible for selecting the site and time of the rally, and inviting special guests to address the rally.  Individuals wanting more information can to go www.teapartyday.com.

American Family Association is a pro-family advocacy organization with over 2.5 million online supporters.
